Are you a student heading back to school or a professional seeking to advance your career?
While college poses its own challenges, studying doesn’t have to be one of them. When you’re cramming for an exam, good study habits can help you alleviate test anxiety and keep you on track for success. Here are a few suggestions for making the most of your study sessions.
Claim a space with minimal distractions.
As a calm and quiet environment, a library makes great study spot. But studying in the same place can become tedious after a while, so try mixing up your location to gain a new perspective. College campuses are full of ideal study sites such as lawns with shady trees and local cafes permeated by the aroma of fresh coffee. Give yourself a new view whenever you want to reduce monotony.
Remember to take occasional breaks from the books.
Your brain can start to slow down after a period of intense study, and taking breaks can help you get the most out of your hard work. Briefly retreating from your studies every hour can help relieve stress, avoid strain and recharge your brain. A walk outside for some fresh air also can give your faculties a boost.
Grab a snack to fuel your cram session.
Consider munching on popcorn, which contains a lot of fiber, or bananas for a boost of memory-enhancing vitamin B6. Be sure to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and maintain focus during your study session. For additional tips on developing effective study habits, see the accompanying guide.
